Consumer Identity: a Dutch Perspective on Benefits, Issues and Next Steps
Consumer-to-business identity on the internet has potentially many advantages for all parties involved. The take-off however is slower than many people expected. This talk analysis the benefits and risks for consumer identity, especially from the perspective of online service provider (relying party). It discusses market entry and business model issues, the role that trust frameworks can play, privacy and user aspects (including user centric identity) and different approaches to regulation. Two Dutch consumer identity initiatives will be used as use-cases in this talk: OpenID.nl+ for low-trust identity, and the High-trust Consumer Identity for the financial sector initiative.
